restructure the tax code to try to get rid of a lot of the particular loopholes, and that would allow us to broaden the base, reduce the overall rate, and this is exactly what the president's bipartisan commission talked about. that could be much more pro growth. >> we talk about this a lot. i feel like i've been hearing this idea of tax reform for a long time. >> oh, yeah. >> it does include lowering corporate taxes to get corporations to hire, because they feel like when they hire one person, it's not just about the salary, it's about the health care benefits and the long-term benefits that person will get, and that costs money. so why haven't we seen an overall reconstruction of the tax code given the people? the bowl simpson agreement came up with that. we keep hearing about it but it doesn't happen. >> i keep my fingers crossed. maybe i'm too hopeful that that's what the committee is going to come up with. maybe they can put us on a path to going to more fundamental reform. we have a very high tax on corporations on capital in the u.s. and that's one of the reasons why we're not get

which surfaces from time to time for "please give us a simpler tax code." people don't always like it when they discover that simpler means they lose some of their deductions and credits. but if the politicians can convince them the economy would be better off with lower rates, fewer tax credits and fewer tax deductions, that could change the picture. the second thing is both the perry flat tax and herman cain's 9-9-9 plan are tax plans that would move us away from taxing income towards taxing consumption. that's something that economists have said is inevitably going to happen in the united states. i don't think it's going to happen quickly. tax reform doesn't happen quickly. but the fact that these ideas keep popping up again tells you they have some longevity. >> i'm just wondering why we haven't had tax reform yet. how long have we been talking about the fact that lowering corporate taxes but eliminating the loopholes would actually be a positive? >> right. well, this year is the 25th anniversary of the tax reform act of 1986, which did a lot of the things that you just suggested.
